Eating a healthy, well-balanced diet has benefits for both you and the baby growing in your belly. Your first big job as a mom is making good nutrition decisions - for both of you. Some nutrients are absolutely critical for the healthy growth and development of your baby. When it comes to knowing what foods to eat during pregnancy, follow Eating Well with Canada's Food Guide each day to make sure you and your baby eat smart, paying particular attention to the following key nutrients:
Your pregnant body is nothing short of miraculous. In just nine months it nourishes and grows a tiny fertilized egg from conception into an awe-inspiring baby. But this miracle doesn't stop at birth. It continues with the production of the perfect baby food, breast milk. We’ve put together this guide to give you the breastfeeding tips and basics you’ll need to get breastfeeding off to a good start, even before baby arrives.
As babies grow, so do their nutritional needs. By about six months of age, most babies are ready to explore their first solid foods. You’ll need to be ready too, so it’s best to plan ahead when introducing solids. Every baby is different and the time of food introduction and their appetite may differ slightly between babies. Be sure to consult with your baby’s doctor about when to introduce solids to your little one.
No matter where your baby is at in their development Nestlé helps nourish both moms and their little ones every step of the way.
